The mobile device as phallus

Two data points offered without comment

1. Writing in TechNewsWorld, Rob Enderle calls the new iPad  "penis iron":

Last week was an interesting week. Apple (aapl) announced what appears to be a penis iron in the new iPad, and folks are burning through their monthly 4G data plans in a few hours. Tim [Cook]'s having his first Antennagate moment, and Steve Jobs he isn't.

2. The Intercom Blog's Des Traynor offers free advice to makers of Google (goog) Android devices: "If your product isn't a condom then don't name it like one." See chart above.

UPDATE: My wife reminds me that the iPad is more of a feminine product. How quickly we forget.
